6. This is as though Paul Ryan or Rick Santorum resigned over a policy being a teensy bit too harsh

toward poor people.

No doubt there are other things involved - IDS is also in conflict with Cameron over whether we should stay in the EU. But it's still a shock. If Osborne has become too viciously right-wing on disability issues for Duncan-Smith, well - he's become too right-wing on these issues for practically anyone!

I was glad to see a number of Tory MPs rebelling on the issue: it shows that the UK hasn't yet TOTALLY degenerated into moral slime. My Tory twit of an MP, who normally never rebels over anything, actually joined the rebels over this, making this the first time since 2010 that I haven't felt thoroughly ashamed of my MP.
